Did You Know?


The opening scene as shot was different from the opening scene that aired, but it had to be cut for timing reasons. Originally, the episode opens in Kira's quarters, with Kira and Jadzia Dax looking at Ziyal's paintings. Dax points out that Kira still misses Ziyal, to which Kira answers, "I'll get over it. Death and I are old friends." Dax then suggests that Kira bring Death to dinner. They get up and leave the room, and the scene then picks up in the corridor as seen in the finished episode.

O'Brien calls Sisko into OPS because someone is attempting to beam into OPS, but no one prepares for this unknown and unauthorized person by having weapons ready. See more »


[first lines]
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: What about Captain Boday?
Major Kira: Captain Boday? You want me to bring Captain Boday to your quarters for dinner?
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: It's just a suggestion.
Major Kira: Well, it's a bad suggestion! Number one, you used to go out with Captain Boday, number two, Worf hates him, and number three, and we've discussed this many times, Captain Boday has a transparent skull.
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: And you don't like to see a man's brains. -... - What about Doctor Trag'tok? He's intelligent, he has a good physique... and he has a very opaque cranium.
Major Kira: True....

3 November 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

An identical personage from the alternate universe enters the space station. He looks exactly like Kira's former lover and she develops a new relationship with the duplicate. This is dragged on into the Bajoran religion which intrigues this guy. But it's hard to remove yourself from what you have become. The whole thing was dull and rather pointless.
